You might think distancing yourself from a Pisces man is the right thing to do, but you might want to rethink that.

So, it is really important to know exactly what to do and what not to do in such a situation. If this is happening to you right now, keep on reading and find out all the things not to do when a Pisces man distance himself.

Why Do Pisces Men Distance Themselves? 4 Reasons

Sometimes Pisces men distance themselves, but it isn’t always personal. It is so important to understand the reasons why Pisces men may distance themselves. Here are four possible reasons why a Pisces man might distance himself:

He Needs Time Alone To Recharge His Emotional Energy

This water Zodiac sign is known for his deep emotions and ability to absorb the emotions of others. This can make Pisces men prone to emotional exhaustion, and they may need some time alone to recharge and find balance within themselves.

When he needs time alone to recharge, it is crucial to respect his space and not take his distance personally. He will be a much happier version of himself and a better partner when he has had the time to recharge.

When a Pisces man pulls away, you should give him this space and not smother him with constant attention or demands for explanations. If he sees you are chilled and understanding of his need for alone time, he will appreciate your support and likely come back to you when he feels emotionally rejuvenated.

He Feels Overwhelmed or Stressed

Pisces men are highly sensitive and can easily become overwhelmed or stressed by external factors. When a Pisces man feels overwhelmed or stressed, he may distance himself as a coping mechanism.

He is the type of guy who tends to finds ways to escape reality when things become too overwhelming for him to handle. This is why he will tend to retreat into his own thoughts and inner world when he feels overwhelmed or stressed.

The last thing he needs is added pressure or demands from you when he is already feeling overwhelmed. Instead, give him space and let him know that you are there to support him when he is ready to open up.

He’s Unsure About His Feelings or the Relationship

Pisces men can be indecisive when it comes to their emotions and relationships. If a Pisces man is unsure about his feelings or the relationship, he may distance himself as a way to figure things out.

It can be really confusing for him to allow himself to be vulnerable and express his true emotions. So, if he is pulling away because he isn’t sure about his feelings or the relationship, it’s important not to pressure him or try to force him into making a decision.

Give him the time and space he needs to sort out his feelings. If you put too much pressure on him to commit or make a decision, it may cause him to withdraw even further. Remember, the key with a Pisces man is to be understanding, patient, and supportive.

He Feels Smothered or Controlled

Pisces men value their freedom and independence, and if they feel smothered or controlled in a relationship, they may distance themselves. They tend to be introverts by nature and need their alone time to recharge and reflect.

If a Pisces man feels smothered or controlled because you are constantly wanting his attention and invading his personal space, he may pull away. Instead, give him the freedom to have his personal space and time alone.

Sometimes he just feels too much and it can be really overwhelming for him. Trying to force him to open up or share his feelings will only make him retreat further into himself.

What NOT To Do With A Pisces Man When He Distances Himself


Distancing yourself from a Pisces man can be challenging, but it’s important to avoid certain behaviors that may push him further away. Sometimes you just need to take space from him and give him the opportunity to come back to you when he is ready.

Here are some things not to with a Pisces man when he distances himself:

  1. Don’t bombard him with constant messages or calls.
  2. Don’t play mind games or manipulate him to try and get a reaction.
  3. Don’t try to force him into opening up or sharing his emotions.
  4. Distancing yourself from a Pisces man might backfire and cause him to feel abandoned or rejected, leading to further distance and detachment.
  5. Don’t become needy or clingy in an attempt to win him back.
  6. Don’t try to guilt trip him or make him feel bad for needing space.
  7. Don’t try to make him jealous by flirting with other guys or talking about other men in your life.
  8. Don’t criticize or belittle his emotions or sensitive nature.
  9. Don’t ignore or dismiss his need for solitude and reflection.

Instead, Here’s What To Do When A Pisces Man Is Distant

When a Pisces man is pulling away it can be easy to think the worst and jump to conclusions, but it’s important to approach the situation with understanding and patience. What you can do is to give him space and time to process his emotions.

He is probably going through something deep and needs time to figure things out on his own. Instead of smothering him with attention, give him the freedom to have his personal space and time alone.

Allow him to come to you when he’s ready and let him know that you’re there for him if he needs someone to talk to. Remember that Pisces men are known for their sensitivity and need for emotional depth.

By respecting his boundaries and showing empathy towards his need for solitude, you can create a safe and supportive environment for him to reconnect when he feels ready. Additionally, it’s important to communicate your own feelings and boundaries calmly and honestly when he does come back.

You can tell him that his disappearing act hurt you and made you feel uncertain about the relationship. By expressing your emotions without blaming or criticizing him, it opens up the opportunity for open and honest communication, helping to strengthen the bond between you both.

When A Pisces Man Becomes Distant After Intimacy — What Should I Do?

When a Pisces man becomes distant after intimacy, it’s important to approach the situation with compassion and understanding. It’s possible that he may be feeling overwhelmed or emotionally vulnerable, and may need some time to process his feelings.

It may be that he himself is feeling scared of the intimacy the two of you have shared and needs space to reflect on the depth of his emotions. During this time, it’s important to give him the space he needs and avoid pressuring or suffocating him with your own expectations or demands.

If you pressure him or make him feel guilty for his need for space, it may push him further away and make him realize that you are not the right person for him. Just give it some time and space for him to come back to you when he is ready.

When a Pisces man is pulling away, it’s important not to panic or overreact, even though I know this is very difficult to do.

Is Your Pisces Man Distant After Intimacy?

Does your Pisces man pull away or get quiet when you’ve just had a deep emotional connection? Does he seem to disappear just when you thought he was getting closer? Have you felt confused by his hot and cold behavior?

If so, then he might have an avoidant attachment style.

He could be Dismissive Avoidant and completely terrified of commitment… Or he could be Fearful Avoidant and REALLY want commitment, but get scared when he feels himself getting closer to you.

If he has either one of these attachment styles, you’re going to end up feeling extremely confused at times.

And both are caused by childhood trauma.

When you can see the scared little boy inside him that had to shut down his feelings if he’s dismissive avoidant… Or have a parent not provide his needs consistently if he’s fearful avoidant…

It can make it easier to have empathy and compassion for his confusing and frustrating behavior. 

But that won’t fix it.

And while advice on attachment styles can be helpful, what you really need to stop this frustrating hot and cold cycle is to understand him better.

Thankfully, there is a simple system to TRULY understand how he ticks based on his astrology.

It will stop him from pulling back when you begin feeling closer. And it will accomplish this in only 30 days.

So no more crying yourself to sleep when your Pisces man goes distant. No more feeling incredibly confused. And no more wondering what in the heck is going on with him…

    2. Dear Anna,
      My pieces husband has a feeling to a female friend ( cancer lady). I confronted him. He was offended and pull away. What should I do?
      Thank you.

  2. Hallo Anna,
    After 3 weeks of having no contact with my picses man, I was a little mad and sad. So I decided to forgive him, so I could go on with my life. I said to him that I hoped that live was good to him and that he was happy. Immediatly he answered, that he was totally not happy. He had an operation on his eye and it did not went well. And he told about his backpain. He said that under these circumstances he always withdraw himself from everybody. But that he would come back to me soon. He is a tough man, thats what he wants to show, not his vulnerability. I think its touching.

    Thanks Anna
